As I’m working on research for Episode 2 of PBIY TV. His voice makes me wanna cry lol.
If you’re interested, below is Sheeran talking about the song’s origin:
The ‘A Team’ came from an experience I had when I did a gig at a homeless shelter,” says Sheeran of the song. “I was 18 at the time and kind of quite naive. So, I was a bit taken back by some of the stories that I heard.
I got home that night and I just wrote a lot of the lyrics. I wanted to write it so it sounded kind of upbeat, so you wouldn’t really know what it’s about, because it’s quite a dark subject.
“A drug like crack cocaine is called a ‘class A’ drug. That’s in the same category as heroin.
Instead of making it clear and just saying what the problem was, I’d say, ‘She’s in the ‘class A’ team’. It was kind of my way of covering up (a person’s addiction), I guess, making it a bit more subtle.”
Alright, hope you’re having as much fun as I am right now 😉
